ENRICHING SAN DIEGO’S DIVERSE AND CREATIVE MUSIC COMMUNITY SINCE 1991
WHAT IS THE SAN DIEGO MUSIC FOUNDATION?
The mission of the San Diego Music Foundation is to enrich San Diego’s diverse and creative music community through music education for youth, professional development for current and emerging industry professionals, live performances for the San Diego public, and recognition for San Diego artists of exceptional merit or service. Chartered in 1991, the San Diego Music Foundationwas created to make music performance accessible to children of need in San Diego County by providing them with a hands-on vehicle, the guitar, to express themselves creatively. Over its 26 year history, the organization has served over 60,000 K-12 students county-wide from Chula Vista to Fallbrook. In subsequent years the organization has broadened its focus and service areas, providing forums to increase local musicians’ understanding of the music business, garner performance exposure within the local and national music communities, and to publicly recognize the breadth and diversity of the San Diego music scene.
